Potato cakes with smoked salmon - Jamie Oliver Recipe

I recently featured a breakfast I had made, the Jamie Oliver Potato cakes with Smoked Salmon. I altered the recipe a little bit, but the original can be found here.

Salmon Potato Cakes with Scrambled Eggs

 This was such a nice breakfast, and with most of the preparation done the night before it was really simple to put together in the morning (and really delicious!). 

First I boiled the potatoes in salted water until they were nearly cooked. I then took them out and let them cool down before grating them into small pieces. 

Boiled Potatoes

  In a mixing bowl I combined the potatoes with some spring onions, a tablespoon of flour, pepper and a little bit of butter and mixed well to combine little balls. These were then put in the fridge overnight ready for me to continue in the morning.

The next day I heated my frying pan with frylight and gently fried the potato cakes for a couple of minutes on each side until they were warm throughout and a golden colour. Meanwhile I prepared my eggs. I would have loved to have used poached eggs but I can't for the life of me seem to make them (tips please!). Instead, I used scrambled.

I then topped the potato cakes with the eggs and then the smoked salmon. I think the original recipe had this the other way around but I like to break the rules! I think my potatoes were slightly overcooked so these were more like fish cakes without the fish but they were still delicious! And so easy, even for me!
